Happy 4th...again


Happy 4th of July

I love July!!

2 of my sisters and myself were born in July, my daughter Krista was born in July, my husband was...yup ..born in July.. (not a requirement for marriage, but it did tip the scales :) ).  My daughters doggie was born in July, and our cock-a-poo also. Oh, my baby brother too.  My son in law is the out of sync person here, but he is in February on one of my other sisters birthdays, so we didn't make him change his birth certificate. Our Bichon is December, but that is ok too, of course. Jasper is defiantly sharing his birthday month with a higher authority, and it shows!

So, anyway, the point is, July is a good month, and the fact that Uncle Sam was born in July just proves it!

So, with all this going in my favor, I am thinking maybe I stand a chance at winning a new cutting machine! Several blogs have a  Silhouette give away, and I so want to win this. Every time I use my Cricut I end up frustrated with shredded paper and it is growing old.  I am very unselfishly sharing the sites, even knowing that it increases the competition. ;)  Both of these sites are daily reads for me, so look around while you are there.

Crap   (just trust me on this.. you will love what you see when you get there)

Later, gators... gotta go enter to win me a new cutter.

I came across this challenge on a blog:

Not sure I did it right, but it was interesting. This is what came out.. rules are not to edit~ so this is it!


When Holly was a baby I would swoop her in my arms and play the music and dance. We danced for 5 years, till she went to dance with Jesus and my music stopped.
When Krista was a baby I swooped her in my arms and we danced. We dance still, 30 years later. Joyful. Sad. Waltz. as the music of life plays, we dance. As the month cycles, we dance. With new puppies and birthdays and death we dance.
Sometimes she leads, sometimes I lead, always we are there to hold each other up as the music changes and cycles.


Have a great day!
